Are the Democrats Suffering an Identity Crisis? Hillary Clinton may not be facing much of a primary challenge, but that doesn't mean that Democrats aren't divided among themselves. Left-wing Progressives are beginning to sound like Tea-Party Conservatives. They don't want compromise with Republicans -- or other Democrats. It starts at the top with the President and Senator Elizabeth Warren disagreeing on free trade, and it's playing out in primary races around the country. One reporter calls it an ancient " blood feud " that's finally come out in the open. Is it all about ideology versus pragmatism or the best way to raise money?
Border security and campaign promises President Trump has promised tightened borders and a big beautiful wall. Guest host Barbara Bogaev looks at two tent-poles of the President's immigration policy: extreme vetting of visa applicants and building the US-Mexico border wall.

That's raised questions about who's running the White House? We hear a variety of answers.

The Trump Administration says it has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what that might -- or might not -- mean for North Korea, China and the prospects for diplomacy.
